Release of version 0.9.8 of the IIPImage server. This release contains some important security fixes and enhancements, improvements in performance and several new features. Notably, image export via the CVT command to arbitrary pixel sizes and support for both the Zoomify and DeepZoom protocols, allowing IIPImage to be used with several 3rd party clients. In addition there is image timestamping, improved HTTP header support and numerous bug fixes. Zoomify and DeepZoom support was carried out thanks to an R&D grant for the Old Maps Online project from the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic.
